Steve Jobs: The Icon with Black Turtleneck

People might not associate Steve Jobs with fashion. But he has created some impressive, revolutionary and most importantly, stylish gadgets that are also considered as must have accessories.

Being featured in so many publications, people could not help but noticing his signature style. Black turtleneck, blue jeans and sneakers. So what’s exactly the brands he used to wear? Most of the time it’s St. Croix black long-sleeved mock turtleneck, a pair of (mostly worn-out) Levi’s 501 (never belted) and grey New Balance M991 running shoes.

Even though there are some pictures of Jobs wearing the black turtleneck on his younger days, people started to associate him with the signature outfits when he wore them during Apple event in March 1998, as he started to wear the same items in almost every Apple event, and some other events, too, ever since.

Steve Jobs had been fighting pancreatic cancer since 2004, yet he kept on working  and creating magnificent products until he finally announced his resignation in August 2011. Judging from the pictures, we know that he’d been fighting it very hard.

I remembered telling my boyfriend how thin he looked on iPad 2 launch in March 2011, and of course I know better than to blame it to bad fitted clothes.

Steve Jobs once said “I want to put a ding in the universe”. No doubt he has.

And if there’s someone who deserves a peaceful rest, Steve Jobs’ name will be on the top of the list. Thank you Mr. Jobs, for stopping by and share us your life.

the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.
